Batch rename files with a variety of options
With Rename Expert you can quickly and easily rename files and folders. The program offers a variety of innovative
features to create consistent and, above all, meaningful names. With a few simple clicks, you can number files and
folders, shorten long file names, rename file extensions and much more.
Rename Expert supports metadata such as EXIF, IPTC and ID3. By using metadata, you can organize, sort, and rename
files automatically. Despite its diversity of functions, the program is very easy to use. With Rename Expert, meaningless
file names are a thing of the past!
Simultaneously rename folders along with subfolders and files
Allows the batch renaming of any number of files
and folders in one go (incl. network support).
Filter and sort functions
The extensive filter and sort functions
can be applied to many attributes (e.g., the file extension, date created, metadata like image dimensions),
allowing the exclusion of files and folders.
Use CSV files for naming
CSV files - for example, exported from Excel, can be used flexibly for naming files and folders.
The old and new name can be composed of several columns.
Move and rename files in one step
In addition to renaming, files can also be moved or copied into subfolders
whose naming is based on metadata (e.g., photo taken date, artist, album, etc.).
Many special functions
Rename Expert offers a variety of specialized functions, such as adding the
checksum (MD5, SHA, CRC32) of the file contents to the file name, the encryption of
folder and file names, or the possibility of adding random characters to file names
as well as to rename files completely random.
Real-time preview of the new file names
All changes are shown in real-time and checked for errors (e.g., duplicate names) to avoid possible conflicts.
Rename files using numerous metadata
Metadata (EXIF, IPTC, ID3, etc.) can be used
for the naming of files (e.g., for images, video files or audio files).
Numbering of folders and files
Files and folders can be numbered sequentially or in random order.
An existing numbering can be easily overwritten or adjusted.
Create file names automatically from file contents
Rename Expert can automatically rename text files based on a part of the file contents
(e.g., to include data from TXT, XML, HTML, or log files).
Rename file extensions
Rename Expert allows you to arbitrarily change file extensions.
(e.g., jpeg to jpg). You can add, remove, rename or adjust the case of file extensions.
Shorten long file names / Edit file paths with more than 260 characters
With Rename Expert you can rename files or folders that exceed a path length of 260 characters,
and therefore can no longer be edited using the Windows Explorer.
Save rename-settings as profile
Action Lists allow the combining of actions (replacing the first word, moving a part of the
name, adjusting the case) and can be stored along with additional settings as a profile for repeated use.
The program provides many thoughtful features to allow a flexible and comfortable renaming of files
of all types (for example, music files, image files, documents, etc.). These include the replacement
or exchange of certain areas in the name, or moving a part of the file name or folder name to any
position. Furthermore, additional data, such as metadata, the creation or modification date, or the
name of a parent folder can be included in the name. Rename Expert contains many features for
advanced users and allows for example the use of regular expressions or the command line for automated
renaming. Additionally, the content of text files can be used for naming, for example, the title of HTML
files or values from XML files.
Furthermore, the program allows the renaming and
moving of files over a network. It supports Unicode
file names and paths with more than 260 characters. Rename Expert can rename folders recursively, i.e.,
folders along with subfolders and files contained in a single step. By using the
filter, the objects to be processed can be
If the new file names are already contained in a list or
CSV file, you can use them for
naming. In addition, you can number files and folders,
insert random characters, change the case of the folder and file names and remove unwanted characters from the
name. All this can be achieved in a few steps with Rename Expert.
Metadata are descriptive information about the file's contents.
Rename Expert supports many metadata, including EXIF & IPTC information stored inside digital photos.
Many digital cameras store these automatically in the photos. With Rename Expert, this data can be
used for the naming of photos. For example, camera model, location, or the date taken of photos can
be added to the file name.
Furthermore title information contained in audio files, for example, in MP3 files, can be used to
rename the music collection in a uniform manner. For the file name of documents, for example, the author
or the subject may be used.
